Motorcycle Sketch Demo- 1968 Benelli 175cc

I have been meaning to sketch out my motorcycle (my grandpa’s old bike) for some time now.  I started with just a simple papermate fine point on marker paper with the sketch below.  Feeling out the shapes, silhouette, proportions and placement of each part.  There is lots of room in the engine area, because Benelli used this frame for 4 different size engines (125, 175, 250 and 360cc!).  Click on each image below for the step by step demonstration!

Teacher Evaluations Day!

Yesterday I had to step out of class for about 20 minutes, so that the students could take a Teacher Evaluation of the Vis class Jon and I taught this semester.  The semester has gone really well, and I think that we effectively passed on sketching knowledge….but there is something to be said when all those pencils are sitting and writing about your teaching performance.  Its like all weapons are now pointed at you!  Flipped through the Art of Star Wars and decided to sketch the ship I would need to break back into that classroom!

star wars @ DMV

While sitting @ DMV for 2+ hours I had lots of time to doodle.  Star Wars always seems to come to mind, so I sketched out some of my favorites!  Only used an extra fine point sharpie, on recycled bond paper that I found @ DMV.

I just got the Daniel Simon book and decided that I needed to  threw this down in prisma, sharpie and chartpak on cheap trace.     Lineweight? Lineweight!  Thanks Daniel for great inspiration!
